Many get the impression Ottawa is a boring little town filled with politicians with not much to do. You could not be more wrong!
There’s a whole bunch to be found in the downtown core as well as surrounding area. I’ve compiled a list that’s family friendly, with a little something for adults and music fans.
We just got our RBC Bluesfest tickets! Duran, Billy Idol and Joe Jackson. Now we have to decide what else we’ll do. Decisions…decisions.
What are your plans?
